I've also read about a lampworker here somewhere who puts her press base on something that brings it to about eye level.

When I use my tools to make cubes I certainly bring it to eye level as well.

I get my mandrel bright red hot before I apply the molten glass.

The mandrel doesn't have to stay red hot but once it gets that hot, you can just keep it warm while your glass melts.

Time to dig out all that glass I'm not using.

Makes me glad I bought out the dude at Big M in Tacoma when I finally realized Spectrum was out of business! Only thing I'm short on is clear.

Liability

Sorry. Hard nose here.

As you gently break up with this person you might want to tell them that hy charging for torch time means they are a business and could easily be sued for this.

Many of my sticks end up as permanent 'flowers' in indoor plant pots. People love them.

What torch are you using?
